    Have been incubating my eggs, (first timer) with the wrong end up in the egg turner for 5 days. I have now turned the eggs and placed them with the small end down. This is the correct way, I hope!! I am wondering if I have ruined the eggs or is there a change that they may still hatch out? Today is day 6.

    There's a very good possibility they will be fine since it's still quite early. Best of luck with the hatch! [​IMG]

    You should be fine. Take a deep breath and relax. It's early!

    They will be fine... I had one this past Spring that stayed that way for the whole 21 days! She hatched out and she is fine! They are some amazing creatures... even when we mess it up! [​IMG]

    You're ok. The good point is they were still being turned. Setting them upright isn't terrible important until they start getting bigger, and this is just so they're closer to the air sac.
